    I just purchased a pair of driving mocs that are made of pretty flexible leather. I'd like to have some shoe trees in them, but I think the heel part of the Woodlore trees is doing more harm than good in terms of stretching out the heel area rather dramatically.

    Anyone know a manufacturer that sells just the front part of a shoe tree so I can shove that in there without ruining the shape of these mocs?

    Just take the pin out of the metal shaft and you have the cedar foot front. Then you might stuff newspaper in the back part.

    Try a pair of adjustable trees and size them so as not to unduly stretch the shoe.
